    I really like this company

    May 8, 2022 - Executive Assistant in Washington, DC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The flexible work culture is really great and everyone wants to see you succeed - which isn’t always the case.

    Cons

    Sometimes because the work culture is so horizontal - its not always clear who’s in charge of what. Also it can take some time to get things rolling as everyone wants a say in decision making.

    Poor Product Market Fit and Very Little Support

    Pros

    The old Gallup name might mean something every once in a while.

    Cons

    Not all, but a good portion of management is out of touch and provide minimal support. Very little coaching and lackluster enthusiasm, just wished they cared more.

    Good experience until it’s not anymore

    Mar 8, 2022 - Consultant in Washington, DC

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The onboarding process was great - really makes you feel like you are part of a fun team. The benefits are okay. Flexible work is nice until you’re overworked and it really doesn’t matter.

    Cons

    Gallup is going to bring you in with an excellent onboarding program, teach you how to be a consultant, their methodologies, make you feel like part of a really fast-paced modern consultancy with the people science that’ll blow your clients away. It’s all fine and dandy until you learn how incredibly underpaid and overworked you become. Gallup is a workplace consultancy that, as the name suggests, advises to companies on keeping their employees engaged. They do it quite well, in theory, but seem to forget how to take their own advice. The work-life balance is terrible, driven by a billable hours quota that is unreasonable, which essentially negates their “unlimited PTO” policy. The pay is 50% less than competitors. The list goes on and on.
